Global Polyglycolic Acid Market, 2014-2024
Polyglycolic acid (C2H2O2)n is thermoplastic aliphatic polymer, and biodegradable polymer. The Polyglycolic acid is a semi-crystalline, biodegradable hydrophobic polymer with good mechanical strengths. It can be prepared starting from glycolic acid by means of polycondensation or ring-opening polymerization. Polyglycolide and its copolymers are widely used as a material for the synthesis of absorbable sutures and are being evaluated in the biomedical field. The solubility of this polyester is somewhat unusual, in that its high molecular weight form is insoluble in almost all common organic solvents (acetone, dichloromethane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, tetrahydrofuran), while low molecular weight oligomers sufficiently differ in their physical properties to be more soluble.However, polyglycolide is soluble in highly fluorinated solvents like hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) and hexafluoroacetone sesquihydrate, that can be used to prepare solutions of the high MW polymer for melt spinning and film preparation. Fibers of PGA exhibit high strength and modulus and are particularly stiff.
Polyglycolic acid has a range of applications in medical sector including, absorbable sutures, biodegradable bone graft polymers, in regeneration of organs, dental surgeries, scaffolds in cell culture & transplantation and in drug delivery vehicles. The fibrous PGA have been used as monofilament, braided form or in mesh structure, Polyglycolic acid Film form has been gaining popularity in packaging industry as a coating material for PET bottles.
